the production of discourse"
Hence the key word "production"
Another word close enough to replace production in this context is "distribution"

Faucault is simply saying what happens "WHEN" discourse is in circulation.......when it hits society.....affects society.......influences society.......etc..

Your probably reading into it too

As for foucault making mistakes......thats common to men

If he didn't have a few kinks in his armor I probably wouldn't read him

But I don't find him arrogant or self righteous

He was an explorer, a searcher, a genius in my book
